Klopp: "I don't think anybody thought we would try and get another goal but Christian had another idea."
It's finished at Selhurst Park and the Reds have a dramatic victory. Stay logged on to Liverpoolfc.com for all of the reaction...
GOAL!!!! BENTEKE!! The Belgian wins a spot-kick in the last action of the game and steps up to side-foot into the bottom right corner. Get in!!
PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL!
Benteke looks for a winner with a curler from 18 yards but the 'keeper pushes it out and we're into the final seconds...
Four minutes added on...
Kolo Toure replaces Roberto Firmino.
UNLUCKY! So close for Moreno, who smacks a low shot on a diagonal from the left channel that looks goalbound until it bounces away off the far post.
Alberto Moreno booked by the referee.
Another change by Klopp - Christian Benteke on for compatriot Divock Origi.
7 goals 4 assists @Roberto_Firmino... https://t.co/p6wMygxs4m— LFC (Liverpool FC) 6th Mar 15:01
ROBERTO FIRMINO! The Brazilian capitalises on a poor clearance by the goalkeeper to coolly grab an equaliser for the 10-man Reds
Switch for the Eagles - Jordon Mutch on for Yohan Cabaye.
MILNER SENT OFF: Huge blow for the Reds as the vice-captain is shown a second yellow card for a foul on Zaha.
Here's an attacking change from the boss... Philippe Coutinho replaces Jon Flanagan.
Jürgen Klopp has some good options on the bench if needed, of course, and Daniel Sturridge is already out warming up...
JOE LEDLEY: The Reds fall behind at Selhurst Park as the Palace midfielder thrashes home having pounced on a clearance from a corner.
And the action has restarted now...
We have a live gallery of images from Selhurst Park - take a look at some of the best photographs so far by clicking here.
Plenty of opportunities in the opening 45 minutes at Selhurst Park but neither side have anything to show for them and it's goalless at the interval.
Milner penalised for a tackle on Cabaye.
Milner takes control of a promising free-kick situation and must have briefly thought he'd scored as the shot deflected and skewed just off target.
Origi is full of confidence at the moment and the Belgian is unlucky with a shot from the left corner of the area that travelled narrowly over the woodwork.
.@mamadousakho has completed 100% of his passes so far this afternoon... https://t.co/H0452ltC6Z— LFC (Liverpool FC) 6th Mar 13:53
Another chance for the hosts, with Cabaye whipping an effort just wide of the right post.
Dann into the book for fouling Origi.
CLOSE: Adebayor is almost on the scoresheet twice, forcing Mignolet to save a curler towards his near post and then nodding a header against the crossbar.
An early booking for Henderson after a foul on Bolasie.
GREAT SAVE: Seconds after Firmino threatened to provide a goal at one end, birthday boy Mignolet sprawls from his goal to crucially prevent Bolasie from tapping home Adebayor's cross inside the area.
Here we go then, we're underway at Selhurst Park. Come on, Reds!

Goals from Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge secured a 2-1 victory for Liverpool on our last visit to Selhurst Park in an FA Cup tie last February. More of the same again today please, lads!
So, stat time... the little magician, Philippe Coutinho, could make his 100th Premier League appearance if he features for Liverpool at Selhurst Park today.
Happy birthday to the big Belgian... Let's hope your present is a clean sheet today!
Wishing @SMignolet a very happy 28th birthday! https://t.co/8EvsPzwZYV— LFC (Liverpool FC) 6th Mar 08:55
